Description


Welcome to the next chapter in our Legalstrasse series!

There’s been a lot of conversation in the venture community about the pros & cons of doing a convertible note*. But it’s not a one-size-fits-all case. Convertibles can be a weapon of choice for financing early-stage companies, on the condition it’s done in the right way.

How does it work? Should you do it? With or without a cap?
This is what we’ll explore with top experts on the topic ;)

6:30pm - Doors open
6:45pm - Presentation by Daniel Streiff (Streiff Law) on how to use the free convertible note template which will be available on Legalstrasse (
7:30pm - Panel discussion with Filip Dames (Founding Partner @Cherry Ventures), Balthazar De Lavergne (Director @The Family), and Daniel Streiff. They'll be joined by Max Kersting, Co-Founder @Harper (raised a €150K convertible note as 1st round), and formally Co-Founder @Room.me (raised a €500K bridge through convertibles).
They'll review the common pitfalls and provide practical insights to help you take the right funding decision.

This event is free & totally open. Bring your friends, a beer, and see you there!

* In short, convertibles are a form of loan that automatically converts to equity at the next VC round, thus delaying agreement on a valuation to a later stage. More about it here.

We’re a long-term strategic investor that empowers entrepreneurs through education, services, and capital. Founded 4 years ago in France, we now have a portfolio of 600 startups. Raised €400M collectively for them so far. You may know some of them, like Algolia, Side.co, CaptainTrain, Star Of Service. And now we’ve also in London and Berlin!

The good thing about Berlin is that no other place in Europe combines the 3 main ingredients so well:
(1) talented entrepreneurs, developers & designers from eastern, southern and northern Europe
(2) a vibrant and easygoing lifestyle - way cheaper than London, way more open than Paris!
(3) a cosmopolitan and welcoming city that lets you feel like you’re part of it, even if you weren’t born here.

See you around!
